Hi I thought I would introduce myself to my readers.   I am Mary Ernst McColgan a flower shop owner in Short North.   I should also introduce the dogs.  Savannah is the store greeter who has made more friends in the short north than most people.   Logan is our 6 month old who shows up on weekends to say hi.   I created the blog to let readers know about all  of my favorite things: flowers,  designers and products.   


For Thanksgiving...

Why not do something different for your Thanksgiving table this year? A wheat centerpiece is reminiscent of the harvest the pilgrims were celebrating, so not only is it gorgeous on your table, but entirely appropriate! There'll be plenty to give thanks about when your dining table looks harvest chic, and Rose Bredl did all the work for you.


Premier Post/ Feature in Country Living Magazine

Exciting news! Not only is this Rose Bredl's first blog post, but in it we also get to show off store owner Mary's gorgeous designs being featured in the December 2008 issue of Country Living Magazine ( on sale now)! In this blog you'll find the staff at Rose Bredl's daily home, floral/garden, and product design inspirations. We'll also be featuring our own designs for weddings, home decor, and much much more. Here you'll also find information about the products we carry exclusively at our store (Frances Palmer, Plume Candles etc.) in The Short North, Columbus Ohio's arts district. For inspiration, stay tuned!
